Sometimes a solution to a problem can be so simple and yet we overlook it. Did you know that 20% of emergency auto tows to a service shop are just out of fuel? Sometimes a low platelet count can be caused by some of the simplest of things. Simple problems require simple solutions, but if we can’t see the answer the problem becomes huge. Yes low platelet count can be so frustrating that it drives the simplest of solutions out of the ballpark of a common sense approach.

Here are 7 natural steps that could help you reverse low platelet count if in fact any one or a combination of them is what is triggering or over stimulating your immune system to destroy platelets.

1. Take a good quality vitamin and mineral supplement. Most of the things we like to eat are not really any good for us or at least deficient when it comes to food value. Crops today because they are genetically enhanced to give high yields have lower actual food value per unit. Current wheat for example has only 40% of the nutritional value of wheat grown in the 30’s. Processed foods have lost much of their food value and contain questionable chemicals as preservatives. It is easy this day and age to be deficient in one or more vitamins or minerals.

2. Drink and bathe in pure water. This may seem like a non issue but much of our public water supplies contain chorines and fluorides and these can effect our immune system in harmful ways. This is also true with bottled water. Check labels, most are just bottled from the same public water supplies plus the plastic bottle itself could be a contaminate.

3. Eliminate or at least limit exposure to toxic house hold cleaning products, pesticides and other chemicals. Use natural cleaning products and no pesticides in the home or garden. Wash all fruits and vegetables completely before consumption.

4. Get the bad fats out of your life. Eliminate as much animal and saturated fats as possible. Increase omega 3 fats if possible. This will assist proper bodily function and remove stress from the immune system.

5. Eliminate all toxic skin care products and use only natural products. Be sure to use make ups on a limited basis if at all.

6.Consume a natural diet of raw fruits and vegetables. No processed food or fast food restaurants. This is a tough one but the important thing is to start today and work towards the goal of total elimination over time. This is really a change of eating habits and takes time.

7. Find a good alternative health provider. One who is familiar with new techniques such as Bio tracker technology and DNA testing to identify possible sensitivities (allergies etc.) that can be contributing to low platelet count. Also hair analysis for possible heavy metal exposures.

These 7 steps are a simple start an may well reverse your low platelet count. You will also want to start learning about the benefits of using herbs and other natural supplements to repair and restore healthy immune function. Good health to you.

    natural treatments for lupus?
    My brother was diagnosed for lupus after a blood clog and i was wondering if there was any treatment for this in a natural way
    Also i was wondering if high doses of blood thinners could have caused his lupus?
    One more question. Is there any specialist that treats lupus?

      Hi, Im Chris, I have had Lupus since my teens, but not diagnosed until my 20’s. I am sorry there is no miricle cure, just ways to manage it through proper medical care and supplements that his doctor must approve. He needs to get a reffreal to a rhuematologist. A rhemotologist is a doctor who handles arthritic conditions, and connective tissue diseases, which Lupus is, as well as being an autoimmune disease.
      An autoimmune disease happens when the body thinks it is being attacked by outside foreign invaders. Our cells go into overdrive and start attacking our own organs, skin, blood, nervous system, and anything else in our bodies it can get to.
      There are drugs to help us with the flares (periods of disease of activity). But he needs to be on them, Left untreated, he will not have any improvment, and can become more ill. go back to his primary care doctor and get a referrel to a rhuemotologist, it can take 1-2 months for a new paiten to get in to most, since in most parts of the country there is a shortage. Even here in Los Angeles, There can be a wait of 1-2 months, and we have many Rhuemotologists available to us. If you live in a hot/ sunny climate keep him out of the sun, that can make disease activity worse. From July-Sept, I do everything early in the morning or after dark, even swim in my pool. Sunsensitivity can make us very ill. Keep his diet as perservitive free as possible at least until seeing the specialist. Like I said I do take specialized supplements, but they are tailored for me, and approved by my doctor, the help, but do not cure. You will see advertisments for miricle cures. They may do more harm than good. Don’t try them please, they may really hurt him, doing serious organ damage.

      If you need support or he does, I own a lupus/autoimmune support group on yahoo support groups, you can join to get access to our files, and get support, friendships, and knowledge and well some off topic fun. Ill also leave you several links, like some of the others did. Just don’t try anything until you get to the right doctor, and get retested, because it may be another autoimmune.

      Good Luck

    How do I deal with lupus with out taking drugs?
    I have had lupus for three years, but I just started get treatment from a lupus specialist at Magee womens hospital. I take a small dose blood pressure medication. But my doctor wants me to take plaqunil and prednesone. But those drugs have so many side affects and I hear so many bad things about how they help one thing but then something else breaks down, Then you are on this cycle of adding on medicine after medicine. I want to live, but I don’t want to lose my eyesight, have liver problems, or other complication caused by these medicines. I know their has to be a way of life change, or natural medicine that will help and have less or no side affects. I lived three years without medicine or help. But I do notice that I had more flares lately. I need to make a decision, I recieved my plaqunil in the mail a week ago, i need to decide if I am going to take or find something else that help to present to my doctor at my next appointment. I want to live but not taking alot of medicine

    I am so afraid to take plaquenil for lupus treatment! any natural cure?
    Does anyone has an experience with plaquenil? or some one knows a natural way to cure lupus? I am currently taking oil fish, cellfood and recovery( for joint pain) and multi-vitamins.

    I am 30 yrs and was diagnose 8 months ago, no internal organs involves and the only symptoms are fatigue and joints pain.

    Please help if you have experience plaquenil as treatment or someone else. I am afraid of side effects ( affects lung, kidney, bones , eye etc.) it help now but causes you trouble later on.

    I am going to see my rhumatologist tomorrow but I haven’t decided yet if i am going to start the treatment.


    1. Science Geek

      You do realize what lupus is right?

      Listen, I know you’re scared. Anybody would be with that diagnosis. But the drugs are safe. The side-effects are minimal. Not taking the drugs and pretending that there is a natural cure is dangerous. You need to understand that the drug was prescribed because it was proven effective in the treatment of lupus. There are side-effects with any drug, even natural ones. What you need to do is weigh the potential benefits of taking the drug versus the potential consequences of side effects and of not taking the drug. Lupus is a highly treatable disease but there is no cure for it. The treatments are proven to be effective and safe as long as you follow the doctors orders.

      100 percent of patients who added glyconutrients to their diet reported significant improvement in lupus symptoms.

      The supplements used by this study and others for Lupus include:

      Glyconutrient powder
      Hormone Support tablets
      Digestive Support to provide probiotics and enzymes lacking in lupus patients
      Colostrum/Lactoferrin/Glycoprotein tablets

Dietary supplements, including glyconutrients, are designed to improve nutrition rather than to treat disease. However, scientific research has established a connection between nutrition and many disease conditions.
      Lupus is a disease that may have active and quiet (remission) periods. The active periods, sometimes called “flares” or “relapses,” are when you have symptoms of lupus. A remission period is when you have few or no symptoms of the disease. A remission may last months or years, or you may not have remission periods at all.
      Some of the medicine used to treat lupus may decrease your symptoms but cause other problems. Ask your caregivers about side effects to watch for when taking your lupus medications.

      *Other treatments may include learning ways to exercise and control stress. Rest, avoiding infection, and early treatment of flare-ups are very important for people who have lupus. It is also important to protect yourself from the sun, eat healthy, and control other illnesses you may have.

      Risks: There is no cure for lupus. Most people with lupus live long, productive lives. However, lupus makes some people so tired that they cannot work at times. Your chance of having a seriou s infection is increased because of lupus. Lupus can cause problems such as vision loss, heart disease, kidney failure, and stroke. Lupus can be life-threatening. Call your caregiver if you are worried or have questions about your medicine or care.

    Kalawalla (Polypodium leucotamos) for autoimmune disorders. Is anyone currently taking Kalawalla, please?
    I would love to hear from you, if you have either taken Kalawalla or if your are currently experiencing good results from this natural treatment, and especially if you have been taking Kalawalla for SLE (Lupus).

    The company I contacted about Kalawalla have an in-house doctor who specialises in autoimmune disorders and who has been very informative about Kalawalla. I have emailed him a couple of times with questions and he has been very prompt and very thorough with his answers. There’s been absolutely no sales patter and the really nice thing is that no one has bothered me about purchasing a trial of these tablets. However, I’m still a little unsure. Testimonies are great but it would be nice if someone reading this who has first hand experience of taking Kalawalla could tell me a little of that experience, please.

    1. Jane S

      I don’t know anything about Kalawalla. Sorry. But my hubby has had autoimmune hepatitus brought on with Coeliacs disease. I’ve never heard of this kind of therapy. Please seek advice from a qualified dr before trying anything like this. It may work wonders, if so, brilliant. But don’t dismiss what your GP tells you.

      I know at one point, it was matter of life or death with my hubby. He was put on steroids for a short period of time, and is now on a very small dose of medication (not steroids) which has brough his liver back to normal.

      good luck with whatever you choose

    Anyone know this type of arthritis?
    I was diagnosed with arthritis about a year and a half ago by a chiropractor, but he didn’t tell me what type of arthritis I have. It is in my back and neck, specifically T 4-6 and I can’t remember exactly where in my back. Because my husband has been out of work due to injury and he was carrying the health insurance, I have been without treatment (other than OTC meds) for the last 18 months. I’m trying to research homeopathic and natural treatments, but until I know what type of arthritis I have, I’m at a stand still. Does anyone else have arthritis in their back and neck and know what kind that is? I know I need to go to the rheumetologist as it is getting worse and worse, but I just can’t right now, there’s not stretch in my budget. I really need some relief! I was told it was caused by undiagnosed, untreated scoliosis and some because of hereditary issued (my maternal grandmother has Lupus and maternal great-grandmother had RA). I currently stretch when I can, my husband (trained paramedic) give me adjustments and I take BC Powder. I’m in my mid-20’s and am sick of the pain and fatigue and the numerous ways it is affecting/complicating my life…..any suggestions would be great!
    I have had a set of comprehensive x-rays-done by the Chiropractor-It wasn’t a guess, he actually showed me the arthritis shadowing on the x-rays

    1. My Kid's Mom

      Since you’re been researching homeopathic and natural treatments, I’ll share a bit about homeopathy in the context of your health concern.

      Despite myriad manifestations of arthritis, important to a homeopath is the person who has arthritis, rather than the “diagnosis.”

      While some health problems at appropriate for self-help care, you won’t be able to find a remedy to help your problem long-term. Ideally, you need to be under the “constitutional” care of a homeopath. Emotional stress plays a big part in the appearance and healing of physical symptoms.

      Even if conventionally considered arthritis (which literally means inflammation of a joint), and despite what your x-rays reveal, I’ve seen homeopathy resolve the pain and inflammation and prevent similar problems from getting worse. I’ve also seen problems considered “irreversible” improve. The homeopath has many “symptoms” (that we don’t think of as symptoms) available to find the homeopathic remedy that will stimulate your cure.

    To sufferers of immune disorders: How can I treat myself for possible lupus/rheumatoid arthritis? (detailed)?
    Allergic to dust/grass as a child, but allergy-free from age 13 until recently (I’m now in my late 20’s).

    Hep C

    Early 20’s: diagnosed with Hep C (untraced source). I was suddenly cured after 1 mo. My doctor said my own body got rid of it, which is rare for hep C patients.

    Several months later I noticed when I’d lay on my left side, there’s a tingly, tender sensation. There’s no pain and I got used to it so I’m just living with it.


    8 mos ago: sudden onset of stiffness/jammed feeling on both wrists (overnight). Always had weak/inflamed knees since 4 yrs back, would disappear with regular exercise.

    Got Sick

    Late last year I had flue more than a month. I was diagnosed with bronchitis, was on antibiotics and was cured right away.

    I started lightly working out again and just a month later I WAS SICK AGAIN! I was down for only 3 days though compared to the last time. Coughed 1 month. I was on stronger antibiotics and cured. I also saw an allergy doctor and was diagnosed with sinusitis and now on corticosteroids.


    My ANA blood test turned out POSITIVE. My doctor ordered a 2nd test for next month. She said it’s an indication of possible lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

    Extra info:

    Never been overweight my whole life.
    Ethnicity: Asian.
    My other “illnesses” recently diagnosed: costochondritis.
    Always had: severe dandruff, on and off but worse now; dandruff-related facial rash, only shows up on the same spots – left cheek near nose, between eyebrows.
    Falling hair is worse now.

    I’m a copywriter for more than 3 yrs. I admit my posture is VERY bad, often sitting or lying on my stomach on the bed (probably caused the costochondritis). Was diagnosed 4 yrs ago with borderline anemia (mother is anemic). Prescribed iron supplements but I stopped cos of side effects which is diarrhea.

    THIS IS MY DILEMMA: I was thinking of eating healthier and exercising again. But wouldn’t raising the immune system make things even worse? I just hate the idea of being on immune-suppressing drugs, considering my now sensitive liver. I would be more open to “natural” treatments. How do I go about this?

    Should i either get keratin treatment or clip on hair extensions?
    So i just turned 19, i recently got diagnosed with Lupus and my hair is falling off a lot and it’s really dry and thin. i’m using this natural shampoo that supposedly helps your hair stop falling off but i see only a little bit of improvement. i used to have nice long thick hair, i miss it but there is always a solution. yea before i was against hair extensions, but you know how life takes you and makes you more aware of things. Any suggestions? please no immaturity :/

    1. Sur La Mer

      I have Discoid Lupus, it’s caused from the sun. . . if your hair is FALLING out, what your hair needs NOW is a lot of TLCs. Meaning shampoo. Don’t comb or brush your hair when it’s wet. Towel dry. Blow dry less than 5 mins. or air drying is best since your hair is falling, THEN brush or finger comb your hair.

      When you wash your hair with one of those nutrient-rich shampoos, most of the nutrients and active ingredients in the product don’t actually end up in your hair, they wind up down the drain… along with all the money you spent on the shampoo.
      It is HOW you use to style your hair or what styling tools that damage the hair, and what chemicals you’re adding to the hair, not the shampoo.

      Best advice from Hollywood’s well known hairstylist in the 80’s once said: “Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair.”

      If you’ve straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in.

      Wigs or hair extensions will only make the hair appear healthier, but they’re both not good for the hair.
      Keratin is a chemical containing formaldehyde causing cancer, and that’s the last thing YOUR hair needs.

    Does any one else have Crohn’s Disease?
    I’m 13 years old and I have Crohn’s Disease along with R.S.D. and also Juvenile Arthritis. I could possibly have lupus. I’ve finally figured out how to control most of the Crohn’s Disease flare-ups with natural remedies but my other problems are full fledged still! RSD, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, will literally make my legs turn blue, cause me to lose any feeling in my legs and arms and I cannot use my legs sometimes when the flare-ups are really bad! Juvenile Arthritis is something else I could possibly have. No doctor has confirmed it, yet and I’ve had to travel out of town to see rheumotoligists before because the ones in my town didn’t know what to do with my conditions!!!

    When I was 6, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. Now keep in mind that this was after coming to the hospital about twice a week for about 4 years because my Crohn’s flare-ups were so bad! My mom is a redhead, I like to call her hothead!, and thankfully she won’t take no for an answer!! She was extremely persistent in trying to find the cause in my horrible stomach pain even though almost every time we went to the doctor, they would tell her I was just fine! This was all before I was diagnosed. Eventually, she found a doctor that somewhat understood what we were going through (mainly her at the time, because I was very young) and tried all the possible treatments that could help ease the disease. Even today, there is no cure for Crohn’s Disease!! At 6, the doctor that helped us diagnosed me with Crohn’s Disease and put me through a series of medications including some that children aren’t allowed to take. I took Methotrexate for a long period of time and cannot think of the other medications right now. I now have to wear glasses because of the medicines I took and my family and I are pretty sure that the medications I took caused my other conditions. We’re pretty much certain that the medicines cause my RSD.

    Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is an illness that causes the lower and upper extremities to turn a bluish color and causes the extremities to become numb. When I first had a flare-up, it was when I was 11 and my parents thought it was a blood clot. So did the doctors. We went through a series of tests that day because I had to go to the hospital. I was admitted for a week and during that time, I had to get an epidural!!! Yes, that thing pregnant women get! I had to get it because my legs were hurting so bad they had to numb them! We’re still not sure if what I have is RSD, but it’s all we got for now!

    I know this is long and sorry but I only gave you two of my illnesses! lol If any one else has any thing I have, please give me tips on how to control it! Anything will help!!Thank you!!!

    1. Loz

      Hi there. I don’t have Crohne’s Disease, but I’m 25 and I’ve had Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (the correct name for RSD) since I was 14. It started in my right knee following a minor operation, but it now affects almost my whole body and ahs put me in a wheelchair because of some of its secondary effects that no amount of physio or medication has been able to counteract. I’ve never heard of medications causing CRPS/RSD – it’s almost always initiated by some sort of injury or other trauma.

      I wish that I could tell you how to control it – I’ve been through pretty much every recognised treatment with no real success. I guess that my only advice for what it’s worth is to take each day as it comes and to recognise that you are going to have bad days. Don’t give up by any means, but know your limits and boundaries, and know when it is time to say ‘okay’ I’ve had enough and when it is okay to push yourself that little bit harder.

      If I can help in any way, please feel free to email me.
